this book. 



IN MEIIORIAM 

Let us pause before going 
on our way to pay tribute to 
one of our best and dearest 
friends --Caroline M. Swain # 
Her death in 1935 marked the 
end of a glorious career and a 
happy existence. She regard- 
ed each of her pupils as a child 
of her own, and treated him as 
such. Never in all our success 
or failure will we forget the 
kindness and thought fulness of 
Miss Swain — Educator, Counselor , 
Friend of all Youth.

CLASS POEM 



At the threshold of life they stand tonight 

Before this joyous throng. 
They stand, the class of " Thirty-Six" 

To sing their farewell song. 

Their happy class song comes to you, 

But in a minor key. 
1 hear three voices soft and low 

Singing their song to me. 

One voice sings of the bygone days 

When Wilmington was young, 
Anf for its children paved the path, 

Thus light though dark was flung. 

The present sings the song of youth 

Who face the world today, 
Who, void of fear, with courage bold 

Start on their happy way. 

The future sings a simple prayer; 

"God guide their steps aright" 
And help them read with seeing eyes 

His book of life and light."

Bashful and shy, when alone is he,

school papers.

Mot so big, not so small

The Objectives of Education 

Education is the training we get to help us prepare for a more 
complete life. Our training "begins at home. Here we are taught 
obedience, and learn to distinguish the right from the wrong. Our 
training continues through school and college. 

Education has five objectives, or aims, which prepare us for a 
more complete life. The first one is health. We learn that one- 
should- develop sound minds and bodies through physical education, 
sports, and. the study of hygiene. 

The second objective is the command of the fundamental pro- 
cesses. We should develop the ability to think intelligently, and 
to express those ideas clearly and accurately. These two factors 
are essential to our future careers, and we must develop them both, 
because one factor cannot stand alone. It must have the support of 
the other. 

The third objective of education is worthy home membership, o 
must learn to appreciate the sacrifices made by our parent s to iaake 
good homes and to give us an education. Our parents have done all 
they could to make our homes happy, and tried to give us a good 
education—an education that perhaps they never had. The least t/o 
can do is to do our share in making our home life a happy one, aiA 
make all we can out of the education given us by our parents. 

The fourth objective is vocation. In school wo should select 
the subjects that will prepare us for the work for which wc are 
best fitted, 30 that we may do our part in making our country a 
prosperous one. There are so many fields into which we may enter, 
that it is at first a rather difficult task to make our choice. 
But whatever our choice should be, we must try to get as much edu- 
cational preparation as possible, because our industrial life is 
very shrewd, and competition is keen. 

Citizenship is perhaps the most important objective of all. 
With the aid of the former objectives, we can become good citizens. 
We live in a country ruled by the people-- a democracy. It is there- 
fore necessary for us to have sufficient education to elect the 
right people to represent us in Congress, The representatives must 
also be educated, fitted, and trained to obtain the desired legis- 
lation. We must be prepare to hold a public office. A citizen 
has many obligations to fulfill. One of them is voting. Every 
citizen has the privilege to vote. He should use this privilege 
and vote, but he should cultivate an open mind, so that he can 
draw his own conclusions, and not be influenced by the opinions of 
party politicians. A good citizen should obey the laws of the 
land, whether he approves them or not. If he honestly believes 
some of them are wrong, he should do his part in having them ropoa" 1 



If wg get the right kind of education it will undoubtcdly 
hclp us cl velop high ideals, and many of us will strive to realize 
them. We may have to start from the bottom and climb upward. Our 
climb may be hard and stoop, but the higher we climb the broader 
our view, and the nearer we arc to our hopes of success and happi- 
ness. 

And now the time approaches when the class of 1936 must bid the 
Wilmington High School farewell. Wc must leave the school which 
contains memories of ioy and sorrow, and must part with the teachers 
who taught us wisely. The class is now on the hilltop of vision 
of what lies ahead, and are to go forth to me^t the challenge of the 
future, trusting that the life which follows school, will be gen- 
erously worth while.

WHAT GRADUATION MEANS 
Dedicated to the Junior Class 

Parents, Friends, and Classmates: 

I have the honor of representing the Senior Class in saluting' 
you. We extend to you, our most cordial welcome and hope that you, 
a s well as - ourselves, will be participants in this feeling of joy 
and sorrow, which we experience tonight, I say joy because we feel 
happy that we are taking our places in the world and sorrow because 
we are leaving the one institution in which most of our happy days 
were spent. 

There are several meanings of "graduation" ,' therefore, I shall 
enumerate some of them: 1) Technically speaking, graduation may be 
defined as the completion of the high school term; the mere ac- 
ceptance of a diploma which certifies that you have accomplished 
your assigned work, 2) To some, "graduation" may be defined as the 
dividing line between the past and the future, 3) To others, the 
word may instantly draw an imaginative picture of the future. This 
picture may be that of achieving their goal in the business world, 
or it may be that of furthering their education in order to widen 
their range of knowledge so that they may become more competent, 
4) Besides the future, it also reminds us of the past. The time 
has come when we can look back and analyze our character. Did we 
make worthy use of our leisure time? Did we use mental effort to 
our full capacity? Did we accomplish everything we hoped to? Did 
we make good preparation for our new life? 

I believe when we have reached this stage in life, that we are 
fully able to answer these questions, 5) The word "graduation" 
could also be interpreted as, "resolution", that is, we resolve to 
make our future lives successful, 6) We might compare graduation 
with a lamp: the lamp of our new approaching life v/hose radiance 
predominates the darkness of 'the past. 7) It may also be com- 
pared with a magnet, that is, it is drawing our future nearer to 
us. 

Volumes could be written on this subject but I believe I have 
given you, the Junior class, enough examples to make you realize 
how really important this event is. 

Our motto is, "The higher we climb, the broader our view" and 
"graduation" is the first step in preparation for the climb.

The world then need not go to war for natural, unavoidable 
causes, "but because a few unscrupulous individuals seeking per- 
sonal gain breed hate, suspicion, and fear in a world already 
dominated by intense, selfish nationalism. 

The armancnt race in which' the world powers arc now partici- 
pating, the greatest in history, is a serious threat of war, 
since this ha3 been the cumulation of every similar preparation. 

To maintain peace the world must first establish an Inter- 
national institution for the conciliation of disputes which will 
be comprised of every nation and which will have the power to en- 
force its decisions, Wo must abandon this intensive program of 
a rming which has been stimulated by munition makers who, by In- 
fluencing public opinion through false propaganda and even repre- 
senting their interests at disarmament conferences have persuaded 
the world to proparc for war in the name of peace. To remedy this 
evil immediate steps should be taken to remove the profit clement 
from programs of national defense. 

Wo will contribute a great deal toward the solution of the 
economic problems, which have been the screen for vicious motives 
when we succeed in effecting a high degree of international 
cooperation and the world trade. 

Wo must lower the tariff that cripples the commerce of the 
world, levied because each nation selfishly considers her own wel- 
fare and is not interested in the prosperity of the world at largo 

War is not inevitable, but not until we undermine the present 
misconceptions concerning its causes, can we hope to bo free of 
the horrible menace of war,

• ^ ■ ■ " - - * CLASS HISTORY 

In September of the year 1S32, one of the smartest, brightest 
looking classes, ever assembled, entered the portals cf the Ti'ilmir.g- 
ton High School, the Glass of '36. 

Although looked down upon by the upper classmen and confused oy 
new methods and studies, the class, confident of its ability, went to 
work immediately, approximately sixty-five students were put into 
home rooms under the supervision of hiss Hathaway and Miss Stanton. 

In November, the class took its first steps in organization. 
Waldo Whitney was elected President; Florence Bousfield, Vice-Presi- 
dent; Florence Balkus, Secretary and Josephine noy, Treasurer. 
Margaret Duggan and Harry Drew were appointed to the Student Council. 
which was first inaugurated that year under the direction cf Hr, Kooc, 

As freshmen, the class took very little part in school activiti 
with the exceptions of Field Hockey and G-lee Club. Several of the 
girls were subs on the Field Hockey Tear.. A Boys' G-lee Club was foi 
ed under the direction of Miss Cazneau. Fractice was held after 
school, but the boys did not sing in any public affairs. 

In scholastical efforts the freshmen ranked very high. Seve^_ 

of the students of the class attained highest honors for the year ai : 
many were on the honor roll. 

At the start of the Sophomore year the class was reduced by sev - 
al members. Most of these moved away from town, but two dropped 
school altogether. The same officers were reelected to office with 
the exception of the Student Council mercers. These offices being 
filled by Joseph Donovan and Margaret Duggan. 

That year also marked a rise in school activities for the cias--. 
Several of the boys were on the baseball team, among the::. Harry Drew, 
who starred at catching. Quite a number of the girls were on the 
Field Hockey team and made heroines of themselves by hanging up an ■-.. 
defeated record. The Boys' Glee Club sang two special pieces at 
graduation and a third with the Girls ' Glee Club. "he class was rat* 
high scholastically for the year. 

It was during the Junior year that the Class started to show i~ ; - 

real value. The year was a busy one for all members. Several dance 
were held which were very successful. Some members of the class 

launched out into the Sea of Dramatics, winning laurels in the .-.. ... 
play of that year. The stars T *vere Joe Donovan and Tfaldo Whitney. 

The first real important class meeting was held in October. 
Margaret Duggan was elected President; Fred Fish, Vice-President; 
Leonard Dreww, Secretary and Florence Balkus, Treasurer. The Stud ; 
Council was discontinued. 

In the fall Ur. Kambour started intra-mural basketba.ll. In 
game a team of Juniors defeated the Seniors. Baseball season al 

found several Juniors making the team, among them were Leonard 2: 
Fred Fish, Wally Whitney, Joe hehanus, and Ed MacGranahar.. 



At graduation Junior Boys served as ushers. The G-irls 1 Glee C1-- 
sang. 

The Senior year started off with a bang. At the first class 
meeting Margaret Duggan was elected President* Joe Donovan, Vice-Pres- 
ident; Florence Balkus, Secretary and Ruth Baldwin, Treasurer. Class 

meetings started to become a daily affair. The A. A. play was the 
first event in which Seniors took part. Senior members of the cast 

were Waldo Whitney and Fred "Fish. 

Football started sports for the year. It was the first time this 

sport was really taken interest in since 1929. Although the squad, 
under Mr. Grinnell, lost all its games, the boys had a good time play- 
ing and learned many valuable lessons of good sportsmanship. Seniors 
played an important part on the team. Captain Joe Donovan, Willard 

Fuller, Ed MacG-ranahan , Ed Hansen and Allan Franz were all first 
stringers. 

During the winter and early spring, the school out a basketball 
team in the field. Several games were won, but most of them were 
lost. Joe Donovan, Wally Whitney, Albert Hale, and Ed Hansen were 
the Senior members of the Squad. 

G-irls' sports in which Seniors participated were Field hockoy 
and basketball. Both teams were extremely successful in winning gam ss. 

Margaret Duggan, Phyllis Watters, and Florence Balkus played important 
parts in these victories. 

The Annual Senior Play with an all-Senior cast was highly success- 
ful. Much credit was given both to Miss Marland, who coached the pla;' 
and to the Seniors in the cast, for their fine work. Members of the 
cast were Margaret Duggan, Dolly Farrell, Betty Evans, Mildred Van 
Steensburg, Florence Balkus, Lillian Babineau, Joe Donovan, Willard 
Fuller, Ed Hansen and Allan Franz. 

Spring came with baseball holding the limelight. Although the 
results thus far have not been so good, we have better results for tho 
future. 

Graduation days are very near and the Seniors, members of the 
class of '36; look forward to them with great eagerness, thinking of 
the pleasant memories they will have of them in future years. 

Thus endeth the history of one of the greatest epochs since the 

world beg a n, the epoch which gave the world the illustrious class of 
1936.

DRAMATICS 
PEG- 0' MY HEART 
On November 8th, 1935 the play "Peg 0' My Heart" was presented 
"by the Athletic Association. Miss Edna Thornton was the coach, and 
her work was commendable. 

The cast was as follows* 

Peg Phyllis Robinson 

Jerry Frank PI impton 

Ethel Chichester June Butters 

Alaric Chichester Frederick Fish 

Mrs. Chichester Dorothy Todd 

Christian Brent Waldo Whitney 

The lawyer (Hawkes) • George Plimpton 

The maid Marion Whitney 

The butler — « ■ — 'Jack Barrows 

Also a remarkably well-behaved dog. 
This is a familiar and well-loved play telling of the diffi- 
culties met by the little Irish girl, Peg, when she comes to live 
with her aristocratic English aunt (not "ant") and her family. 
Peg, instead, of being changed into a social automaton like her 
relatives, changes them to her way of living. Through her, Ethel, 
her cousin is prevented from disgracing herself by running off with 
Christian Brent, a married man, and in the end Jerry and Peg real- 
ize their love for each other. 

After the play, there was dancing to the music of Charles 
Fish ! s Orchestra. 



AUNT ABBY ANSWERS AN AD 

"Aunt Abby Answers An Ad" was presented by the Senior Class 
April 24, 1936, under the efficient direction of Miss Mar land. 
The play was very successful financially and all of the partici- 
pants were complimented for their splendid acting. 

Members of the cast were : 

Aunt Abby Margaret Duggan 

Anna Ainsley Betty Evans 

Lillian Lorraine Dolly Farrell 

Lucindy Lovejoy Milly Van Steensbur^ 

Essie Ebbersole Lillian Babineau 

Mrs. Purviance Florence Balkus 

Horace Harter Eddie Hansen 

Horace Harkwell Willard Fuller 

Bobby Barrington Joseph Donovan 

Billy Barberton Allen Franz 

The play was a hilarious comedy, mistaken identity causing the 
audience much amusement but the characters much bewilderment. Aunt 
Abby i3 a crochoty, old-maid who runs a tourist camp. Her niece 
visits her and brings her friend Lillian, both of whom are scheming 
to communicate with Bobby and Billy, but their man-hating hostess 
makes it difficult. Through Essie Ebbersole, giggly love-sick 
village girl, Aunt Abby gets a cheap magazine containing an adver- 
tisement from an elderly man. Aunt Abby secretly determines to 
answer the advertisement to show her tomentors what she can do, but 
complications set in when her young guests and their friends dis- 
cover her secret. The boys get rid of her answer to the advertisc- 
mentr-effectively they believe--and proceed to don beards and woo 
Aunt Abby, whom they have never before seen. ■ In taking turns at 
the disagreeable task, Bobby mistakes Lucindy, the maid for Aunt 
Abby in a rather rough breathless scene. In the meantime, Aunt Abb 
taking no chances at losing her man, las written another answer to 
the advertisement. Horace Harkwell appears on the scene. The com- 
plications are unravelled and a disgusted Harkwell returns to St 
berry Center after his fruitless quest' for a wife, leaving Aunt 
Abby to her rustic swain Horace Harter, the young people delight' 
over the change in their aunt, and Essie Ebbersole full of goss:".;) 
for the neighbors.

V/e also offer our deepest consolation to the underclassmen 
for the torture they yet must receive. 

1. V'e advise no class to try to duplicate our brilliant 
scholastic and athletic records because it will be a waste 
of time. We will however, allow our records to stand as 
models for future generations. 

2. How to get good marks. 

A. Laugh loudest at teacher's jokes 

B. Bring teacher an apple (or something) 

C. Remember, the teacher is always right, (almost always) 

3. Alibi's for no homework. 

A. I forgot, (very weak) 

B. I left it home, (will work at intervals) 

C. I did not do it. (best loved by teachers) 

4. Never copy exactly what you sec on your friends paper. 
Experience shows that alterations are necessary for ob- 
vious reasons. 

5. Pay your dues before June 15 or you will be nuts trying to 
catch up on your liabilities, (applies to Juniors) 

6. We advise the students to start a. campaign for bigger and 
better pencils. 



7. V'e believe in the discontinuation of "MacBeth" and -Ham." 
and substitute "Thrilling Detective" and "Judge". 

6. Remain at homo evenings and keep no late hours. 



_i 



o 



. Abstain from all rich foods that may impair your health 
and thus weaken your brain, (if you have one) 



1 . Always carve on desks as this improves your penmanship. 

11. Have no respect for school property (especially books, th-:; : 
last too long anyway.) 

1&. Use plenty of paper. Bring a generous amount home every 
night, it's free. 



.r. Finally, the students should strike for shorter hours, .<■. 
homework, and s bettor five cent cigar. 

follow these lucky 17 advisory rules and the school 
live will be more wholesome snd happier, (if you don f t get 
throi.n out on your c: r) .
